71 Sheep Try Soccer
by Pablo Albo; ill. Raul Guridi (Canica, 2016)

Economical with words, content to play on the inherent absurdity. The anthropomorphic sheep are Larson-esque and hopeless, spending most of their time trying to retrieve their ball from a tree. The illustrations juxtapose packed sheep clusters and generous amounts of grey space.
